When it comes to growing Hoheria in a pot, you need to take special care. In colder regions, it is best to store the pots inside or place them in a place that is protected from severe and prolonged cold. The roots may suffer if it gets too cold. It is also important to take extra care that the soil mix remains moist, but not too wet. To ensure optimal growth, you can fertilize your Hoheria during the growing season with balanced fertilizers.
